Mari joins me tonight to talk about the impact of living a life with macular degeneration. There are various types of this disease, wet and dry – age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in adults over 50 years old. Genetic, epidemiological, and molecular studies are beginning to unravel the intricate mechanisms underlying this complex disease, which implicate the lipid-cholesterol pathway in the pathophysiology of disease development and progression. Many of the genetic and environmental risk factors associated with AMD are also associated with other complex degenerative diseases of advanced age, including cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Of course, I am also afflicted with AMD being blind in one eye and fighting to save my sight in the other – at the age of 9 I had measles which often causes eye issues in later life.
